One single transaction, first create the account and then the client, as
you said. For instance (i don't know your tables):
test=# create table account (id serial primary key, name text);
NOTICE: CREATE TABLE will create implicit sequence "account_id_seq" for serial column "account.id"
NOTICE: CREATE TABLE / PRIMARY KEY will create implicit index "account_pkey" for table "account"
Zeit: 289,478 ms
test=*# create table client (id int references account, name text);
Zeit: 41,802 ms
test=*# insert into account values (default, 'account1');
INSERT 0 1
Zeit: 1,014 ms
test=*# insert into client values (currval('account_id_seq'), 'client1');
INSERT 0 1
Zeit: 10,208 ms
Zeit: 0,447 ms
That's all a single transaction, including the DDL-statements (create table).
